“Music is such a huge part of the holiday season and there is nothing more special than singing along with family, friends, and neighbors,” Brandi Newton, Executive Director of the Idaho Falls Arts Council, said in a news release. “I hope this event is able to become a tradition for our community, so that we can all feel the joy of music together.”

Bar J Wranglers to host two Christmas shows

The Bar J Wranglers, regular performers in Jackson, Wyo., and around the region, will be in Idaho Falls for two Dec. 17 shows at the Colonial Theater, 450 A St., to benefit the Idaho Falls Rescue Mission.

The first show costs $20 and is set for 2 p.m. The second show costs $25 and begins at 7 p.m.

The Bar J Wranglers combine stand-up comedy with cowboy music. The Idaho Falls Arts Council website described their shows like this:

“The Bar J Wranglers deliver some of the purest harmony, best musicianship and funniest ranch humor ever seen on stage. As soon as the Bar J Wranglers take to the stage, listeners leave behind their busy life and settle into a time long ago — a time of the singing cowboy.”
